We will be 3 days in Prague, Berlin, and Budapest and 2 days in Vienna. I haven’t purchased our Eurail passes yet - are there any day trips from any of these cities that are really worthwhile and might justify adding days to our Eurail passes?I look forward to your comments.
Hi there ! This is the first time I am using Interrail: I want to travel from Bratislava, Slovakia to Beograd, Serbia When trying to find the route in the app planner, I can’t find this tripDoes it mean my pass (5 days global) will not allow me to do this one? Or is there any trick so I can keep my plan as I was supposed to? I have the same issue for the next trip I had planned, which is from Beograde to Sofia, Bulgaria It seems Beograde is not available on the app planner, while the website shows the train station of the city as available Thanks for your help !Roman
Question about changing trains to get to one destination and Tickets not covered by Eurail pass, is it worth it?
Hi everyone! I plan on visiting Spain, Italy, and Switzerland over 3 weeks. To my understanding, there are some stops in Switzerland, such as Interlaken which are not covered but we are given a discount when purchasing. Are these available for purchase through the app or website? Or would this have to be done in person. I’d like to figure out how much more I’d have to spend on transportation on top of the eurail pass if i decide to go this route.We plan on taking a train from Switzerland to Spain, I noticed there are multiple ticket options. Some say, “pass not valid” what does this mean exactly? To get to Spain, there are multiple train changes and some of the stops are valid, some require reservation, and some say pass not valid, Paris for example is not valid. I believe we would need to find a route that allows us to travel there with no issues. Has anyone had any difficulties with this?

On your way from Berlin to Prague your train will stop first in Dresden and afterwards in Bad Schandau (the last german stop). I second to stop atleast for few hours here. Bad Schandau and Saxon Switzerland offer some nice nature spots and even the railfan have something to explore.The main tourist attraction in Saxon Switzerland is ofcourse the Prebish Gate or the Bastei with a beautifull view on the valley of the River Elbe but i will show you my secret spot that is till yet not so crowded as the “Bastei” and the village Rathen.From Bad Schandau goes a tram that use pretty old Tramcars to the Lichtenhainer Waterfall from here it´s a short walk to the “Kuhstall” (cowhed). You work up to a hill and it can be exhausting but the view you will get worths the effort.the “Kuhstall” (cowshed)View from the Kuhstall on the NatureThanks to @runner.on.rails for the pictures.For me as fan of transportation like ofcourse the old tram from Bad Schandau to Lichtenhainer Waterfall. Another village

Thanks to comments from @mcadv and others in this forum, as otherwise I wouldn't have known that this connection (regional Renfe Feve) even exists.Used our Passes last Friday on the 71872 13:31 Bilbao-Santander service. We had the time and continuous Passes so why not…Times given on https://www.renfe.com/es/en/suburban/cercanias-feve/timetables were accurate.On the Renfe home page planner https://www.renfe.com/es/en the train came up but with incorrect times (30 minutes out for some reason).Couldn't find the train in any planner apps.Departing from Bilbao La Concordia, next to Bilbao Abando but a separate building. A nice peaceful station. Showed our active Passes at the ticket counter and they gave us tickets to use to get through the closed gates. I'd asked the day before just to make sure and the staff confirmed both times this is how they do it.Views were better than we'd been anticipating, nice suprises pretty much all the way.Conductor was happy enough seeing the printed tickets
Hi All, I know there are a few threads on here about 17 year olds inter railing and in particular staying in shared hostels. I am reposting hoping that there may be some new information out there. I am 17 and hope to interrail in Europe in July 2023 with my 18 year old friend. We have already has a positive hostel dorm experience in Valencia (April 2023) where a letter from my parents was sufficient. I am hoping some community members may have some advice or know of the best places for 17 year olds to visit, where shared Hostelling is allowed. Thanks in anticpation.
Did you know there are more options for border crossings than maps and timetables will tell you? If the timetables doesn't show them, it might be because it deems the distance to the stations on either side of the border too far. But if the alternative is a full-day detour, then consider this:Italy-SloveniaThe stations of Gorizia (Italy) and Nova Gorica (Slovenia) are not connected but are only 3,5km apart. This border crossing comes in addition to the only alternative one at Trieste.I did this walk on a Sunday morning and was prepared for dullness and emptiness, but instead found no less than 20 coffee bars with the locals enjoying dolce with their morning sip. Hungary-SlovakiaThe stations of Sátoraljaújhely (Hungary) and Slovenské Nové Mesto (Slovakia) are connected by rail but only freight trains use them. However the two stations are only 2,5km apart, leading you through the small town of Sátoraljaújhely which I found a lovely stop and with plenty of options to stay, shop and eat.
